Hopium

I guess it's fair to say I am an optimist...it would be an understatement to call 2020 "a challenging year", let's face it, it's been absolutely dire for most of us,  but I hope I am not alone in saying I've felt a few small shoots of a brighter future on the way recently....here's hoping it's not a false hope, "hopium" if you will....My latest Bandcamp offering even has some (fisheye) Spring blossom on the artwork for added cheer....




Cheers to all, 


Colin

Bird in Hand 7"


The exclusive and Bird in Hand/Theremin Memoir 7" vinyl is out today... : https://smarturl.it/theremininhand  

Read all about it below:

Dubmission Records and Gaudi follow up his critically acclaimed album “100 Years of Theremin (The Dub Chapter)” with a cover version of Lee Perry's classic 'Bird in Hand' production. 


Recorded on the 'Happy Roots' riddim, 'Bird in Hand' was Sam Carty's take on Naushad Ali's Hindi love song, 'Milte Hi Ankhen'. Here it’s re-titled ’Theremin In Hand’, with Gaudi playing the vocal line on the theremin, while Colin Edwin (of Porcupine Tree) plays bass and Horseman drums. 

On the flip is a brand new Gaudi original, ’Theremin Memoir', which finds him channeling Serge Gainsbourg and Ennio Morricone in his homage to their 60’s and 70’s films. Colin Edwin again plays bass and Sly Dunbar is on drum, while all other instruments are played by Gaudi. 

Both tracks represent a continuation of the themes developed on the “100 Years” album, with Gaudi’s theremin riding the riddims in the same way that Augustus Pablo did with his melodica. The instrument’s other worldliness proves to be a perfect fit with reggae’s earthy roots, allowing the melodies to glide and float in harmony. Bandcamp called it a “match made in heaven”, Electronic Sound a “true triumph” and Culture Dub an “unlikely but undeniably successful union”. 

'Theremin in Hand/Theremin Memoir' is the perfect accompaniment to '100 Years of Theremin (The Dub Chapter)', furthering Gaudi's tribute to Leon Theremin and his amazing instrument on its centenary.

Ex-Wise Heads - "Celestial Disclosure"

Originally released as a vinyl only in 2008, Celestial Disclosure saw a rerelease a couple of years later on CD with bonus track "Manikarnika" featurng guitarist Rajan Spolia, who also plays on the subsequent album "Schemata". The original release came about when Geoff Leigh and I were invited to create music specifically for a vinyl release on experimental Dutch label "C", so we chose to create two long flowing pieces, one for each side of the record. Now available for download on the Ex-Wise Heads Bandcamp page, please click here

Sixth Point of Origin


Sixth Point of Origin is out today on my Bandcamp page.

I suppose the title should be "Last Point of Origin", as it's the last in the set, but I like to keep the idea open and may revisit the concept at some point.....so for now "Sixth Point of Origin"
